A computer can do the image processing, the Arduino is not powerful enough to do it.

Well, you can have the webcam and the computer on board the robot, or use some wireless serial interface (like Bluetooth, Xbee, etc.) to communicate with a desktop computer. In this case, the webcam should be wireless too, if you want to mount it on the robot.

Or you can get a CMUcam and mount it on the robot and have Arduino talk with it on the UART.

do what ro-bot-x says, but vision algorithms are very complicated, i suggest using java for vision algorithms, though its not my favorite language and i gave up learning it  :D, iv seen many books on vision algorithms that employ java.
Need help with an algorithm or a maths related problem? Ill be glad to help :)
